Erin, why did you write this book?
My intention in writing this book is to share the thoughts I collected while journaling during this period, so that others can find solace in my hardships and triumphs. If I can help only even a handful of women, then it is worth it.
What do you do for fun?
I love speeding time with my dog, Jelly Bean. I enjoy fitness and art. I row 2-3 times a week and try to participate in pairing workshop as much as i can.
